It has been eight years since I was last pregnant and have seemed to forget everything! My breasts are in extreme pain, I know there is soreness and tenderness, but any ways to relieve this symptoms or soothe them ? Thanks so very much.

I'm sorry.  I have the same problem and haven't found much relief.  Keeping them in one position, such as in a bra is the best I can do.  But they still feel like frozen cantaloupes and my nipples are constantly burning.  I was prepared for slight tenderness...but not such pain this early on.  Some people recommend heat compresses so you could try that, but the shower even bothers mine.

It may sound counter-intuitive, as movement at first hurt me, but exercise like simply walking for 15-30 minutes a day has been helping me.

I have found that massage has helped alleviate some discomfort, that and warm/hot compresses or showers for sure.  I just firmly apply some pressure and sweep from the center, down around the bottom and up the side a few times and it seems to help.  Also, wearing a softer bra with support, or even just a cami, can be nice.

 

Hope it helps!  I feel your pain!

I recently had mysterious breast pain and it turned out to be thrush. I slathered some yogurt on there for a couple days and the pain stopped.
